Anon Pl 6VII/1 — gat ‘was able’

Snjallr gat ǫrr frá illu
Evstákíus vaknat;
kvôn réð þegns at þjóna
Þéopista vel Kristi.
Ungr nam atferð drengja
Ágapítus fága,
þýðr né þengils lýða
Þéopistus trú missti.

Snjallr Evstákíus gat ǫrr vaknat frá illu; þegns kvôn, Þéopista, réð at þjóna vel Kristi. Ungr Ágapítus nam fága atferð drengja, né missti þýðr Þéopistus trú þengils lýða.

Brave Eustace was able to wake, prompt, from evil; the man’s wife, Theopista, undertook to serve Christ well. Young Agapitus began to cultivate the behaviour of good men, nor did the mild Theopistus lack faith in the ruler of mankind [= God].
